The heads of Hungaryʼs energy regulatory MEKH met with the managers of the countryʼs electricity distributors yesterday to discuss the flow of information as the state increases its role in the household energy sector as well as in network developments, MEKH told Hungarian news agency MTI.
MEKH chairman Lajos Dorkota and deputy chief Péter Grabner met with the heads of ELMŰ, E.On and EDF DÉMÁSZ, as well as with the chiefs of the state-owned Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) and transmission system operator Mavir.
The parties established the Energy Security Forum at the meeting to help reduce the risks that could potentially endanger the security of energy supply.
Hungaryʼs state-owned utilities company ENKSZ will soon take over the retail customers of ELMŰ and its sister company EMÁSZ, and it is talks with another unnamed market player, as well, state secretary Zsuzsa Németh said on Wednesday, according to MTI.
